So I’m back from my epic gaming convention weekend at PAX last weekend, and it was a whole lot of fun! We played lots of new release games including Battlefield Hardline and Borderlands Pre-Sequel and caught up with a lot of gaming friends. Here’s some of my favourite shots:
It’s been a rough ride though, I also got really sick while I was down there with a bladder infection, and found myself in hospital when I got back. Was there for a half a day or so, but I’m okay now and recovering. Thanks for all of your well wishes when I was away.
Don’t forget about this month’s Read Play Blog post on the 16th, with the following topic: “What is your favourite sci-fi game?” With November 7 being N7 day or Mass Effect Day, we thought it would be fitting.
Review copies – physical
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick – Have heard heaps of interesting things and I’m intrigued…
This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner – SQUEE I have been waiting ALL YEAR! Cannot wait for this awesomeness 😀 I think I prefer the Aussie cover because the text looks neater.
All Fall Down by Ally Carter – I just know this one is going to be intelligent with a spunky heroine, and the spy part is awesome as well.
You by Caroline Kepnes – This sounds SO freaky, it is compared to Gone Girl so I cannot wait.
Veronica Mars: A Thousand Dollar Tan Line (not pictured) – I was sent another version of this which I purchased when it came out, love Veronica Mars!
Thank you to Allen & Unwin, Simon and Schuster Australia and Scholastic for these review copies.
